Vols' Maymon Will Redshirt 2012-13 Season

Monday, January 7, 2013 - by special report to chattanoogan.com

KNOXVILLE -- Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin announced Sunday that forward Jeronne Maymon will redshirt the 2012-13 season.

 Maymon, who has yet to practice with the Volunteers this season due to a left knee injury, plans to return to action next season as a fifth-year senior.

 A native of Madison, Wis., Maymon enjoyed a breakout campaign for the Volunteers last year, earning second-team All-SEC honors. He averaged 12.7 points and a team-best 8.1 rebounds while shooting .558 from the field. In SEC play, he led the team in scoring, rebounding, field-goal percentage and steals. He also recorded nine double-doubles on the year and led Tennessee with 18 charges drawn.

 "It's really tough to know that I can't be on the court with my teammates this season," Maymon said. "But I have confidence in them, just like I have confidence in these coaches and our medical staff. I know this is in my best interest, and I am going to work incredibly hard to come back as an even better player and teammate next season. I love Tennessee.

 "I believe everything happens for a reason, and I see this injury as a blessing in disguise. God does not make mistakes."

 Martin will be available for comment during his weekly media luncheon Monday at noon ET. Video of his luncheon comments will be posted on UTsports.com Monday afternoon.
